Jodpod's Chin Up Challenge


Recommended Posts

So here lies my official battle log for my annual goal....completing at least 1 chin up!

 

I have a competition going with my sister in Sydney who can do one first - from free hang - no cheating now.  Although she is a good 20kgs lighter than me, I won't let that stop me from giving it my best shot!

 

I have taken Steve's articles on pull-ups on board, and have set out my 6 week challenge to help me get there.  I am currently working from stage one, aiming for 20kg single arm dumbbell rows.  Once there I will move on to supine rows, negatives and assisted pulls.

 

Is there anyone else out there working towards this same goal?  Would love to hear from you.

Don’t wish it was easier, wish you were better. Don’t wish for less problems, wish for more skills. Don’t wish for less challenges, wish for more wisdom. The major value in life is not what you get. The major value in life is what you become. Success is not to be pursued; it is to be attracted by the person you become.  Jim Rohn
